Kansas City, MO. (Jan, 2005) – Recognizing the growing contribution the Hispanic community is making in the world of commercial landscaping, Lawnsite.com has launched a Spanish-language version of this Web site.

Because of the steady increase the industry has seen in the Hispanic labor force, as well as the proliferation of Hispanic-owned businesses, Lawnsite.com understands the importance of catering effectively to this important group. The site allows Hispanic users access to a fully translated version of the popular English Lawnsite.com as well as Spanish based forums where Hispanics can discuss the industry with their peers.

From my point of view.

If you can't read, write, or speak English, then you should get the !!!! out of the United Stated of America and go back to your native homeland. :gunsfirin

Wow, fellas, how quickly we forget our ancestry! Can anyone who's a member of homo sapiens really claim that all their ancestors lived here in the Western Hemisphere? Nope. The archaelogical record is crystal clear on that one.

Look, Latinos have their place here in the U.S. Do you know how expensive fruits and vegetables would be without them? Also, as Latinos get settled into life here, they're trying to get OUT of our industry. I see a lot more Latino guys working in construction, for instance, which pays better than we pay.

Incidentally, Grassmasters, it isn't your country. It's all our country. Drop the proprietary attitude. Who died and appointed you the god of the U.S.?

You guys can see all this as a problem or as an opportunity. You can look at both English and Spanish-language versions and try to learn Spanish, or you can grow a shell to protect yourself. The smart Latinos and Latinas will use that to learn English. The knuckleheads won't bother.

One thing to think about, Nasandsons: when the waters of change rise, that shell you've crawled into will drown you. Get used to change or become a dinosaur. Your ancestors and mine probably were not that conversant in English when they hit the shores. Latinos in the U.S. are not at risk from the changes in our society: people like you are.

Decide now if you want your mental arthritis to kill you or if you want to adapt to change. It's your call: graveyard of people who won't flex, or life. Tough choice, eh? The Latinos who are moving here have already demonstrated that they're strong enough to adapt. How about you?

A lot of them pay more taxes than you do. The employer withholds fed, state, city, social security, and the illegals don't file a return to get any of it back And most of them are unable to take advantage of any of the social programs that are available for lower income people. If the employer isn't withholding taxes you should direct your anger at him not the Hispanic.

Well for all of you that say go back to your native homeland or get out of your country , I admire your patriotism, one thing most people forget your not native to the USA. If people had told most of our grandparents to go back to there native land I guess only the Indian's would be here still....hmmmm

Well fareway maybe this thread will be enough to finally get your elitist a$$ bounced out of here. Appears to me that you provided false information about lawnsite, mentioned and linked to another green forum, and tried to stir up the racial crap that you seem to enjoy so much. I don't understand why you are so bothered by Hispanics that are living here in the United States.

First, my apologies for not addressing this thread sooner.

Second, it is staying on the board and I will close it. Usually when a hispanic thread pops up I hate to snag it from the board becasue there is usually some good information and insight as to the importance of hispanics in this industry.

Third, Fareway....what in God's name are you trying to start here? I specifically do not appreciate anyone speaking on behalf of this site or my company. There has never been discussion of a hispanic version of lawnsite.com. Is it a good idea? Who knows....but it should not be presented by an outiser as if it were already in the works.

Fourth, I am going to say this about the racist/discriminatory remarks made in this thread....... to anyone who made a post like this, understand it will be your last. Being PRO-American is not the same as being ANTI-everyone else.

Now that is the end.
